Pre-certified reference designs for smart homes
Silicon Labs (Austin, TX) has created pre-certified occupancy sensor and smart outlet designs that employ its multiprotocol Wireless Gecko MCUs and ZigBee Mesh Stack. There are two wireless occupancy sensor and smart outlet reference designs for the home automation market to provide IoT connected devices.

Both reference designs include the EFR32MG Mighty Gecko SoC, providing multiprotocol wireless connectivity. The Mighty Gecko SoC’s energy-efficient architecture combines a high-performance ARM Cortex-M4 processor with a 2.4 GHz transceiver featuring an integrated power amplifier and balun and capable of +19.5 dBm output power for low-power wireless range.

Mighty Gecko SoCs run Silicon Labs’ Golden Unit ZigBee PRO-certified software stack and ZigBee HA 1.2-certified applications, enabling connected devices to reliably join, interoperate and leave a mesh network, as well as scale from a few to hundreds of nodes on the same network without costly rewiring of existing systems.

Since both reference designs use the multiprotocol Wireless Gecko technology, developers can future-proof their home automation designs to support ZigBee today and IP-based Thread networks tomorrow. The Thread-ready reference designs easily accommodate over-the-air ZigBee updates as well as future-proofing upgrades to a Thread stack.
